It may be due to.1 Transient hydronephrosis, pelviureteric junction obstruction, vesicoureteric reflux, megaureter, multicystic dysplastic kidneys.
The differential diagnosis of ANH, in order of likelihood, includes transient primary hydronephrosis, uretero-pelvic junction obstruction (UPJO), vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), uretero-vesical junction obstruction (UVJO) or primary non-obstructive megaureter, ureterocele, ectopic ureter and causes of megacystis.

In our group, three categories of congenital abnormalities were found, namely, primary megaureter, primary vesicoureteral reflux, and ureterocele.
The abnormal findings diagnosed in 15 (18.1%) patients included: mild to severe hydronephrosis in all cases, one megaureter and one case suspected of nephrolithiasis.
All patients had been diagnosed as primary VUR or primary obstructive megaureter and undergone cross-trigonal intravesical reimplantation before receiving TBM.
Magnetic resonance (MR) urogram confirmed the presence of narrowing at the ureterovesical junction consistent with primary obstructive megaureter. Procedure Left intravesical/extravesical ureteral reimplantation with a transverse lower abdomen incision.
